-After it came out that he reportedly staged photos with paps, Meghan Markle’s dad is no longer attending the royal wedding. Is it just me, or does her messed up family make her more relatable?

-Meanwhile, George and Amal Clooney reportedly nabbed an invite.

-Do I have to rethink my whole stance on Benedict Cumberbatch? In a new interview, he says actors should boycott projects that do not pay woman the same amount as their male co-stars. “Look at your quotas. Ask what women are being paid, and say: ‘If she’s not paid the same as the men, I’m not doing it.'”

This is a great take on Anna Wintour‘s recent editor’s letter in Vogue, in which she insist Georgina Chapman had no knowledge of husband Harvey Weinstein‘s behaviour.

-The actors who are in Hawaii filming the Netflix movie Triple Frontier continue to bless us with wonderful photos. This time, Charlie Hunnam and Garrett Hedlund are running shirtless on a beach.

-I really like Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons’ baby name. Huh.

-Led by Cate Blanchett, 82 women climbed the steps of the Palais des Festivals at Cannes to call for gender equality in the film industry.

Cardi B deleted her Instagram account following a spat with Azealia Banks.

Chris Hemsworth‘s daughter came up to him and said she wanted a penis like her brothers and he had the best possible response.

Harrison Ford surprised Alden Ehrenreich during his interview with ET in the most Harrison Ford-ish way. “Get out of my chair.”

-As New Girl winds down this week, Zooey Deschanel reveals that T.J. Miller almost played Schmidt. Thank god that didn’t happen.

Busy Phillips supporting her Dawson’s Creek pal Joshua Jackson on Broadway makes me smile.

Pink let a fan sing at her Vancouver concert and it was great.

-This Is Us star Justin Hartley says a female fan sexually harassed him — and then got angry when he didn’t want to pose for a selfie.

-Not gonna lie: Mandy Moore crying about filming *that* scene in last season’s This Is Us kinda got to me.

-For Mother’s Day, Gwyneth Paltrow shared a nude photo of herself just before she gave birth to Apple in 2004.

-On the latest episode of Jada Pinkett-Smith‘s Facebook show, her daughter Willow shocked her by revealing that she started cutting to deal with the post-“Whip My Hair” fame.

-Even though he once wrote an editorial pushing for his blacklisting, powerhouse agent Ari Emanuel is now reportedly helping Mel Gibson’s return to Hollywood — in order to please Mark Wahlberg.

-Another Transparent crew member alleges that Jeffrey Tambor kissed her without her consent. Meanwhile, Amazon has pulled him from the Emmy race.

-Oh no. Ex-NCIS actress Pauley Perrette says he endured “multiple physical assaults” on the set.

-I had no idea when I was watching last week’s Atlanta that it was already the season finale. What a nearly perfect second season. I still don’t know what to think about that ending, tho.

Ryan Reynolds sang ‘Tomorrow’ from Annie dressed as unicorn on a Korean TV show. This promo tour is wild, y’all.

-Most of the TV cancellations and renewals have been announced (though NBC still hasn’t pulled the trigger on Timeless, despite Kelly Clarkson and Leslie Jones caping for it). Agents of Shield was renewed, Gotham is coming back for a final 13 episodes (which will take them to the 100-episode mark needed for syndication), Lethal Weapon will return with Seann William Scott replacing Clayne Crawford, and CBS dropped Kevin Can Wait and Scorpion. Perhaps most surprising were the seemingly slam-dunk pilots that weren’t picked up, including Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba‘s Bad Boys spinoff,  Hannah Simone‘s Greatest American Hero reboot, and Katie Holmes‘ FBI drama.

-This is a good explainer on why Fox was particularly brutal with the axe this season (TL;DR: NFL, a desire for multicam sitcoms, lack of show ownership, and the Disney deal.)

-Fox also announced they have no more plans for The X Files. Good on Gillian Anderson for hitting up Twitter and refusing to shoulder the blame for the show not going forward.

-This is a great interview with Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s showrunner about the roller coaster of emotions he experienced in the 13 hours between Fox cancelling it and NBC picking it up.

-I seemed to be the only person on Twitter this weekend who did not watch The Kissing Booth on Netflix, which meant I didn’t get to partake in the freakout when it was revealed the main stars are dating IRL.

-The first trailer for Spike Lee‘s highly-anticipated BlacKkKlansman has landed, starring John David Washington (Denzel’s son) and Adam Driver.

Gillian Anderson Is Not Happy with Scully’s Fate

Gillian Anderson discussed what happened to Scully this last season at a fan convention this weekend. Man, you can tell that she’s just gutted about how they did her character dirty. [SPOILERS, OBVS]

-This is nutso: the Westworld creators are planning to post a spoiler video on Reddit outlining season 2 before it airs.  It’s bananas that any show would do this, but especially this one. I get that they were pissed off that everyone guessed last year’s stupid twist ahead of time, but this is a really odd way to deal with that. The whole point of that show is to figure out the twists from what I can tell (I stopped watching in season 1 after it became clear that creating compelling characters wasn’t as important as creating a puzzle maze). But if they take away the fan theory part of it, what’s the point?

Chris Pine is reportedly dating The Mummy actress Annabelle Wallis. She better treat him well! He’s the best Chris!!

Cardi B pulled a Beyonce and revealed her pregnancy at the end of her performance on SNL this weekend.

-Speaking of pregnancy reveals, Kate Hudson announced that she’s expecting her third child by posting a video from her gender reveal party.

-So are Chloe Grace Moretz and Brooklyn Beckham over? He was photographed kissing Playboy model Lexi Wood over the weekend.

-This is a happy surprise: Laura Dern’s Sundance hit The Tale will air on HBO in May.

-The amount Bill Cosby paid Andrea Constand to settle her case has has been revealed: $3.38 million.

-Vulture’s Sandra Oh interview is so very good. She talks about hanging out with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and how she made the heartbreaking realization of how ingrained racism is when she was reading the Killing Eve script and it didn’t even occur to her that she was being considered for the lead.

-Also, her support of the Asian-American interviewer made him cry.

-I’m glad that Colton Haynes is returning to Arrow as a regular (kill the newbies and bring back the characters who actually don’t suck!), but that make no sense with what they just had his character do a couple of weeks ago.

-With Joss Whedon out, it looks like Batgirl might actually be written by a woman. Gasp!

Ryan Reynolds and John Krasinski‘s adorable twitter banter is everything.

-Also, I love that John’s movie crushed all expectations at the box office. And this story about how everyone is afraid to eat during the movie made me laugh.

-Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt has added Busy Philipps to the show’s fourth season, so I guess I need to catch up.

-Speaking of Busy, she told a great story about the time she got in a fight at a bar defending Michelle Williams’ honour.

-The new Infinity War trailer heavies up on Black Panther characters, which is always a good thing. Also, this is hilarious.

-In the Future World trailer, James Franco is a warlord in a post-apocalyptic world. Please kill me before this ever happens.

 

Kim Cattrall Supports Cynthia Nixon

-She may be feuding with Sarah Jessica Parker, but Kim Cattrall still has (kind of?) nice words for at least one of her former SATC costars. She tweeted her support for Cynthia Nixon’s New York Governor bid. It wasn’t the most glowing endorsement, but still…

-The Shia Labeouf comeback tour is upon us. There’s a new biopic starring Lucas Hedges as Labeouf (because white dudes in Hollywood get countless chances for redemption), and now there’s a new Esquire profile, which mentions he turned down offers to appear in The Social Network, 127 Hours, and The Bourne Legacy.

Chris Evans is plotting is post-Captain America career.

Drew Barrymore wants you to know that she didn’t actually mean to insult Jake Gyllenhaal‘s acting skills.

I really hope this tweet is Gillian Anderson’s response to the news that they plan to continue The X Files without her. Or the reaction to the season finale which I haven’t watch yet, but according to the outrage on Twitter, did her character dirty. Whatever it’s about, it’s expert shade.

-In advance of this weekend’s march, George Clooney penned a letter to Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school students, telling them “You make me proud of my country again.” Bill Murray also expressed his support in an NBC News op-ed.

-Terrible: a firefighter died on the set of an Edward Norton-directed movie.

-According to a new lawsuit filed against Russell Simmons, a woman claims she met him when he invited her and her son backstage at a DefJam concert and then he trapped her in a hotel room and told her “I am going to f**k you or I’m going to f**k your son.”

-The Cannes red carpet is full of weird rules (like women have to wear heels) and they just added another one: no selfies.

Will Smith and Jimmy Fallon performed the history of sitcom theme songs.

Rosario Dawson stars in the Krystal trailer, directed by William H Macy.

-Andrew Garfield might be losing his mind in the trailer for Under The Silver Lake.
